OpenLDAP MA Round Two

The generic LDAP MA was announced at the Interop conference this week and will be available shortly on SourceForge (http://sourceforge.net/projects/openldap-xma/). Kernel Networks and Oxford are collaborating on the project which will be 100% managed code thanks to System.DirectoryServices.Protocols (we no longer need to go to the LDAP API in unmanaged code). The increased number of MIIS XMA developers should yeild some cool feedback and participation in the project, which in turn could make for much better XMAs all around since all tend to share the same patterns. The MA is being designed for OpenLDAP but I am also testing it using the IBM DS, the Sun DS, and ADAM. Anybody got a CP DS sitting around to test against?

Great news, we have a customer with an aging CP installation but it uses Sun One as the base - is there value in still testing this configuration?
